Pulmonary Medicine Malpractice
Failure to diagnose and adequately treat respiratory failure, pleural effusion, inhalation injury, asthma, pulmonary embolism, pneumothorax, chest trauma, anaphylaxis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), aspiration pneumonia, and pulmonary hypertension, are areas in which pulmonary medicine experts may be responsible for malpractice. Bronchoscopy and transbronchial biopsy are other procedures in which pulmonary medicine experts may negligently perform procedures, resulting in harm to the patient. Pulmonary medicine specialists must ensure that the appropriate surgeon is present at the time of the procedure to manage complications that may occur as a result of their procedures, the repair of which fall under the scope of another specialty. Failure to recommend or apply appropriate therapies for treatment of a pulmonary embolism may result in a negligence claim. Failure to diagnose lung cancer and referring the patient for unnecessary treatment may also result in successful malpractice claims against a pulmonary medicine expert.
Premature extubation of a ventilated patient is another condition in which pulmonary medicine experts may commit malpractice and may result in disability or death. Failure to diagnose fungal disease of the lungs is a tricky area of pulmonary medicine. The treatments for most fungal diseases of the chest are quite toxic, therefore mistakes in diagnosis may be costly.
